An Irrelevant Birthday + The Big E

I turned 19 on Saturday. 


If you ask me, that is such an irrelevant age – I’m already an adult but still a teenager. There’s no fun in being 19 so I’ll just lie to people and tell them I’m older.

I take back the no fun part – there was a little fun when my fam came up for the weekend and took me to The Big E. “The Big E” is a giant state fair in Springfield, MA that I’ve attended almost every year of my life, beginning when I was just a little fetus (but actually). Unfortunately Sunday was the last day but if you haven’t already been, I HIGHLY recommend you plan a trip next year – you’re tasetbuds will thank you. And if you don’t believe me, I have snapchat to prove it to you. Prepare to get hungry…

*Background Info* There are five “houses” (more like big brick buildings) at The Big E and each house represents a state in New England. The houses are full of food vendors selling food from their state. Example: the Vermont house sells maple syrup and the Rhode Island house has a bunch of seafood. Get it? Good, let’s continue.

New Hampshire’s corn – a personal favorite.

Donuts from… well, I don’t really remember.

The line for this bad boy was crazy long but totally worth it.

A little something to remind me of summer.

Obvi not chicken, but kettle corn.

And ice cream on the way out, just because.


It’s currently 9pm and I’m struggling to keep my eyes open – too much birthday, not enough sleep. Goodnight.
